February meeting

Our February meeting was a members' day where we all brought our own work to do.

This was one member's contribution to our Regional Chair competition.

We also talked a lot about our forthcoming Exhibition, which will be held at the Tithe Barn, Nether Poppleton from Friday June 22nd to Sunday June 24th this year.

There will be a Coastal theme to part of the exhibition. There will also be an exhibition by our Young Embroiderers Group who will be busy making Seascapes at their February half term meetings next week.

This is some of the fabric that the Young Embroiderers will be stitching on - dyed at our morning session.

The exhibition will also have a series of stitched postcards, with a competition to guess each place in Yorkshire that is depicted - this could be realistic or cryptic, so thinking hats will be needed.

There will also be more general (but still as special and interesting) work on display including some of the work that was included in the 'Capability Brown' exhibition. The adjacent St Everilda's Church will be hosting a display of the Stamford Bridge Tapestry alongside our branch exhibition, so there will be plenty to see.

Keep checking the Exhibition tab at the top of the page for more information.

In other things . . .

We do encourage members to wear name badges to meetings. These don't have to be embroidered, but if they are, so much the better!

Lynda Kinnard will be speaking at the March meeting. There is also an accompanying day school on the Sunday.

There will be a demonstration of how to use the die cutter at the morning session of next month's meeting. The die cutter is then available for loan to members for a small fee.

Don't forget we also have a facebook page.
